Long time, no newsletter. It’s me Thea (formerly Gail Butterworth-Bridges). I’ve decided I want to do some experimenting with different forms of writing this year and to all you lucky readers, this is my canvas. I actually intended to leave up my old Gail satire pieces in an attempt to embrace my previous writing instead of trying to burn it immediately as is common ritual, but I deleted it by mistake. Whoops! I also think when I send out this newsletter I have also deleted all my old subscribers so this is actually arriving in nobody’s inbox…but it can serve as an introduction for future readers (hopefully). Anyway this year I want to learn and try out new things. That might mean some satire pieces, some listicles, some confessional essays, some horror short stories or even murder mysteries! A smorgasbord of which there will be no rhyme or reason and definitely no consistent timing. I also plan on reading (watching on YouTube) different advice and exercises from a range of various writers so you’ll maybe see some copycatting of people, some sharp U-turns in style, some wild successes and some enormous failures. I’ve decided to shamelessly not care :) It can only help me learn! Also if anyone has any good prompts or wants to share similar stuff then please send on over. I’m all ears, fingers and toes.
